Mushroom Walk

September 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us as we explore the beautiful and mysterious world of fungi with Western Connecticut State University’s mycologist, Dr. Hannah Reynolds. We’ll look for mushrooms and other fungi along Great Hollow’s trails while learning about their ecology and role in the forest ecosystem. With any luck, we’ll find fungi like giant puffballs, violet corals, chicken of the woods, polypores, shelf fungus, and more. We’ll even learn which ones are edible.

Please sign up by emailing gro.w1575927556olloh1575927556taerg1575927556@ofni1575927556. Free for members; a suggested donation of $5 per person for non-members is greatly appreciated. Please wear proper footwear for hiking and bring water. No dogs, please. We’ll meet by the kiosk at the start of the Red Trail, next to the Merritt House. Click here for a campus map.
